I am from Massachusetts and now live in Europe sometimes, but usually in San Francisco (why?).

I and have been a computer consultant for the past 15 years. I wrote my first newspaper column and built my first website when I was 14. Since then, I have provided tech support to clients worldwide, built UI/UX for hundreds of clients, and managed teams of up to 10 on comprehensive web development projects. I keep up to date on the industry, and recently completed an Interaction Design intensive at Cooper U, a premiere agency in San Francisco.I have helped raise a cumulative $5MM for Bay Area start-ups. I am a blogger for The Huffington Post and have gone on assignment for National Geographic. I am also the president of Curry Without Worry, a Bay Area non-profit that serves the food-insecure featured in The New York Times. I am a distance learning student at UMass Amherst and featured on the school's website.

I love to research and get the energy going around new ideas. As they form, I help visualize and bring them to fruition with graphic design, writing, web development, and social networking.

I quickly come up with conceptual designs in Adobe Fireworks and Sketch. I especially like the idea phase, where I create wireframes and then build them into polished designs. After that's complete, I can translate them into valid HTML5/CSS3 and Javascript. Where my coding skills fall short, I am an active project manager of more advanced developers.

I am also a people person. I love technical support, getting teams together, brainstorming, and growing ideas. I have built and managed teams of 15 and acted as a project manager using Agile Development method tools like Asana, JIRA, Pivotal, and version control.

I have extensive experience working with remote teams and am always on time with my deliverables and online meetings.

A recent testimonial : My company hired Jesse to help with the front-end design and user interface of our new SaaS platform for the financial crime compliance industry. Jesse was not only able to deliver the project on schedule and budget, but he was also able to meet all of our strict specifications, such as ensuring that the design was older browser compatible (a must for our product). I look forward to working with Jesse on any future projects.

2014-Present

Remote Web Dev/Project Management

I am actively performing remote work on a variety of technical web projects with Bay Area companies, and for The Seven Fold Agency . While I am not managing remote software projects or designing a web product I am actively searching for more remote work that feels like a perfect fit for me.

2013

Front End Developer

Captricity.com

I enjoyed my role as a member of the technical staff at this innovative and cutting edge startup, working beyond OCR, to transform paper, fax and pdf forms into actionable data with 99% accuracy. I got better at my existing front end tech team skills, as well as working to pick up new technologies such as Python, Django, and Ubuntu.

PassFail

Technical Project Manager

Built a team of eight and managed the process pipeline for new product development - from concept to specifications to design to code development. While I have a strong set of UX creation skills using the Adobe suite I can also lead other designers and coders to follow functional specifications and did that here. This position gave me extensive experience in content creation, and in user interaction analytics experience to attain strong natural search results, including big data manipulation and integration of over 10 APIs. Helped raise over $3MM in startup capital.

Resigned after one year contract to persue other interests and travels. Still a shareholder and hope they take off soon.

2009-2011

Luxe Commerce

Founding Web Designer, Developer, and CTO

On original founding team of venture-funded startup. I helped secure funding, designed and ran entire site, from UI/UX design to server administration. I developed, designed, and led the web team, as well as overseeing all IT-related decisions for the company. Helped raise $1.3MM seed round.

A true San Francisco SOMA start-up experience. Late nights and early mornings galore, but I'd do it again any day!
